Yuga Labs Confirms Discord Server Hack; 200 ETH Worth of NFTs Stolen

  • The Bored Ape Yacht Club Discord server was hacked on Saturday, with the attacker making off with 200 ETH worth of NFTs, according to Yuga Labs.
  • The hack took place after the project’s community manager, Boris Vagner, had his Discord account compromised, which the attacker then used to post phishing links in both the official BAYC and its related metaverse project called Otherside’s Discord channels.
  • The first was on April 1 when Mutant Ape Yacht Club #8662 was stolen through a phishing link posted in the project’s Discord, with the second coming on April 25 after Bored Ape Yacht Club Instagram and Discord accounts posted a fake link to an Otherside minting.
